I needed an upgrade in my shop for my Lutherie tools and I didn’t want to get those pricy steel tool box to go in my woodworking environment. So I sat down at my drawing table and tried to come up with something to accommodate my need, at a reasonable price, and made of wood.
I made this tool chest with only 4 boards of 8’x6”x1” of black Walnut. I always love the Idea of not using screws and/or nails, therefore I made a Dovetail construction. The entire construction was completed in 4 months, (I do have a day job, and haven’t touch it in the month of December.) Also it was my first attempt at making a video footage in the shop. I think it turned out ok. I divised it in 8 parts and uploaded it to Youtube.
I also used reclamed Oak, red and white, for the drawers slides and and back. Natural satin finish to allow the black Walnut to speak for itself.
It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun!
